Taylor Swift released a new music video this week for her track, Bad Blood. While the song is good, the video is nothing short of epic. Filled with an impressive list of beautiful and influential actresses, singers and models, the video epitomizes the phrase “girl power!” The story, told through music and visuals, is an interesting one of betrayal and preparation for the coming reckoning. Fashionistas will swoon over the pretty faces that grace the covers of magazines and international runways. Geeks will be excited about seeing the likes of Jessica Alba (Dark Angel), Mariska Hardigay (Law & Order: SVU), Ellen Pompeo (Grey’s Anatomy), Lena Dunham (HBO’s Girls), Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit, Pitch Perfect 2) and Serayah McNeill, who recently came to the attention of the masses as Tiana Brown on FOX’s Empire.
Aside from the star power, it’s just cool to see these ladies all dressed up to kick some butt. The video a mini action movie and it’s hard to take your eyes off the screen. The film noir look is fantastic and it’s very cool to see homage to movies such as The Fifth Element, Kill Bill, Vol 1, Tron and Sucker Punch. Also, everyone has an awesome code name and now, I desperately want one, too. I think I might bring it up at the next Sister Geeks board meeting and introduce a motion to adopt code names for all of us. I think I want to be “Black Death” or possibly “Shadow Hunter.”
